Copyright Laws Befuddle McCain Campaign.

Heart said no Barricuda

Heart said no Barracuda

I am getting really tired of these selfish, selfish artists who intend to keep their artistic fruits from the John McCain campaign.

1. CBS just demanded that Youtube remove their latest video ad because it used a Katie Couric tape without permission.

2. They were going to use Barracuda as Sarah Palin’s theme song, but Heart objected after it was played at the RNC.

3. Jackson Browne has refused to allow McCain to use “Running on Empty”

4. Comedian Mike Myers didn’t allow Wayne’s World video to be used in one campaign commercial.

5. Frankie Valli wouldn’t let the campaign use “Can’t Take My Eyes off of You”

6. The copyright owners for the Rocky theme song refused to let it be used without permission.

Even Walter Reed Middle School which was used as a backdrop for McCain at the Republican National Convention demanded that they “not be exploited.” Well I’m sorry you ungrateful little brats.  Did it ever occur to you that the campaign probably meant to use Walter Reed Hospital?

If you people would just donate these things to the McCain campaign, they wouldn’t have to keep using them without permission.  Let’s get with the program people.

  1. maybe no artists wanted their songs to be used becuase they fucking hate mccain!!
    did ya think of that one dumbass??
    they probably don’t want to be affiliated in any way with that embarrassment to our country.
    if you were an artist, would you want obama playing after his speeches at the convention?
    no, you’d probably shit a chicken.
    and then you’d write a stupid blog post about it, and maybe if you’re REALLY pissed off, you would organize a useless boycott and think that people were listening to you.

  2. Jake, why would artists hate McCain? McCain fought for them in a war! And Sarah kills animals for them!
    And why would anyone call Nate’s powerful blog stupid, or his boycott useless? The Dark Knight has been almost kicked out of every major theater now. THAT’s success for you! And Nate, here in Brazil people listen to you. And to our older brother, the U.S.
    When are you going to take your daughter to the movies again? That was fun! It’s always good for us to learn about how children should be educated.

  4. i don’t know how many times i will have to say this: movies NATURALLY become less popular as they get older in the theaters, because people don’t keep coming back to same the movie everytime they go to the movie theaters!! good god, it’s fucking common sense!
    my point was that those artists don’t want their music affiliated with McCain for SOME REASON and they are entitled to the copyright laws.
    like i said, would you want your music played at the democratic national convention if you were an artist? probably not. and even if you didn’t care, the artists who do care are free to control what/who they are affiliated with.
